Passion with a Purpose

Hundreds of trail miles dedicated to healthy high mountain lakes.

Rich O'Connell's trips into the mountains are passion with a purpose. Not only does he get to visit his favorite high mountain lakes, as a Washington Trail Blazer he helps to keep them stocked with the trout that make his trips so rewarding. "Lots of sweat, lots of commitment, bee stings, bush-whacking, and everything from cliff climbing to mountain climbing."
